It’s been a while since the last time we had a good excuse to dress up. So even though Easter may still be more than two weeks away, we’re already planning our outfits.

Used soup bowls and worn shorts among the joys of op-shopping

Last week, I did the environment a favour, in addition to rewarding my wardrobe and my conscience. From my local Salvos, I purchased denim cut-off shorts, a pair of ankle socks and a stack of black, ceramic soup bowls for under $25 in total.
